Mechatronic System Design Course for Undergraduate Programmes
Saleem, A.; Tutunji, T.; Al-Sharif, L.
European Journal of Engineering Education, v36 n4 p341-356 2011
Technology advancement and human needs have led to integration among many engineering disciplines. Mechatronics engineering is an integrated discipline that focuses on the design and analysis of complete engineering systems. These systems include mechanical, electrical, computer and control subsystems. In this paper, the importance of teaching mechatronic system design to undergraduate engineering students is emphasised. The paper offers the collaborative experience in preparing and delivering the course material for two universities in Jordan. A detailed description of such a course is provided and a case study is presented. The case study used is a final year project, where students applied a six-stage design procedure that is described in the paper. (Contains 12 figures and 2 tables.)
